Below are step-by-step instructions on how to embed photographs, video, and mp3 files on Field Herp Forum. A HUGE thanks to the members of FHF who've put these together. And of course to Don Becker (psyon) for his genius. :)

You can attach photos directly to a post or reply here on FHF. Simply look for the option when posting or replying. Parameters are 3MB file size max, 800px wide max, and jpg or png file types.

If you are using another host, see the instructions below.

Here is a simple way to post your pictures on the fourm. Hope it helps!

1. Sign up for and upload your pictures to a photo hosting website such as

2. Resize your pictures to an appropriate size for the forum page.

3. Create a thread on the forum.

4. Copy the IMG code and paste the code into the text box on your thread.

5. Preview your post to make sure the code was pasted correctly.

6. After checking the preview, submit your post.

1. Upload the video to youtube.
2. View the video from youtube.
3. Copy the address, DO NOT CLICK ON THE SHARE BUTTON!!!
4. Paste the address into the youtube tag on fhf
5. Remove the "&" and everything after it


And this should be your result:

Step 1. If you don't already have a DropBox account, sign up for one using this link:
(I totally get free space if you use that link, once I reach my max, maybe we can swap it for someone else's link to them more free space :)

Step 2. Install DropBox on your computer. It will add a special folder on your computer, and when you add files to it, they will get added to the web site. DropBox is a great tool for sharing files between computers as well. Once you add a file to the drop box folder, it will be synced to all your devices that have DropBox installed with your account.

Step 3. Add your mp3 file to the Public folder inside your DropBox folder. Give it a moment to sync to the web site.

Step 4. Goto and login to view your files. Navigate to the Public folder and find your file.

Step 5. Right click on the file, and choose "Copy public link"

Step 6. A dialog will popup with the URL. Choose "Copy to clipboard"

Step 7. Paste that url between [mp3][/mp3] tags like you would for an img.

Put it all together, what what have you got?

NOTE To listen to the audio, you must have a modern browser that supports the <audio> tag. All current browsers support it, but if you use a work computer, and are stuck with IE6 or something... well... you just suck, and don't deserve to enjoy awesome sound clips.

Oh, also as a side note, you can use DropBox to host your photos too.
